debase has been creating comic performance for theatre since 1998.

We believe theatre is for everyone. We believe theatre should not take itself too seriously. We believe theatre is a dialogue between makers and audiences. It should never be a monologue. We believe theatre can be a place for black and white artists to come together to dream the future.

And, yes, we took our name from that Pixies song.
